I had Covid-19 in January: Ian Botham

Jun 30, 2020 13:01 IST

Former England cricketer Ian Botham on Tuesday revealed that he had contracted the novel Coronavirus early this year in January and further said that he mistook the infection for a bad case of flu. While the spread of the infection started in December last year in China, the 64-year-old said that he did not know the disease at that time and that it was amazing for how long the virus has been around and nobody knows all the details. While he praised people for responding extremely well in the situation, at the same time he also urged them to maintain their calm over the next couple of weeks. In a span of more than 7 months, the dreaded virus has claimed over 5 lakh lives.
